Oddity’s story is one of resiliency and rebirth, of toeing the precipice of the abyss and returning with an open heart and a present mind. Her experience as a transgender woman of color is inextricably woven into the music: at once an affirmation of life, a tear-streaked lament, a desperate call to action. Join Oddity as she discovers beauty and cultivates peace by centering love, against all odds.

Hailing from the East Bay, Oddity is a sonic storyteller seeking refuge in the intersections of jazz, hip-hop and neo-soul. With influences ranging from Billy Strayhorn to D’Angelo, Oddity can be found wherever inspiration strikes – be it a tender touch on a warm Rhodes, a heavy dilla-style backbeat, or a bluesy trombone melody.
